Syntax. Part V. Conjunctions. Lesson 3. Subordinating conjunctions used in colloquial and higher registers. Синтаксис. Часть V. Союзы. Урок 3. Подчинительные союзы.

Some subordinating conjunctions that are not standard in neutral register may also be encountered. These may be divided into (a) those which are still used but which belong mainly in colloquial or higher register, and (b) those which are considered obsolete in the modern literary language (although they will be found in classical literature and in some cases may persist in colloquial register, especially in dialect).

по мeрe того, кaк - in proportion as
постольку, поскольку - insofar as, to the extent that
при условии, что - on condition that с тeм чтобы+infin - with a view to (doing)
